Question Of The Day: If You Were In A Band, Which Type Of Music Would You Play?

When I was a tiny version of myself, I used to play a lot of instruments. It all started with the most downtrodden of all middle school activities: playing the recorder. I used to own one of those plastic Yamaha recorders and play it all the time, like the damn Pied Piper.

I used to think I could summon cats with my merry making but alas, the cats hated me. I soon had my father buy me a pennywhistle and then I joined the school band. I played the French horn, the trumpet, the trombone, and the alto sax. I also played guitar/bass in a shitty band in high school that played a lot of Smashing Pumpkins and Bad Religion covers. It was a weird time.

These days, I don’t play much at. I still mess with my guitar making sad sounds in the dark while fiddling with music apps on my ipad. It’s a good time.

Have you ever wanted to be in a band? Let’s say for a moment that you did and that you had the power to play one instrument of your choice. Yes, your voice counts as an instrument. No, Witch Haus does not count as a type of music. i have no idea what type of music I would make if I were in a band right now. I mean, how could you get Moderat, Olafur Arnalds, ACxDC, CHVRCHES, Mice Parade, Britney Spears, & Frank Turner to all come together in a song without it sounding like your soul dying? That is my dilemma.

Now it’s your turn.

If you were in a band, which type of music would you play?
